Summary

PROBATE PITFALLS FOR PI LAWYERS
HOW TO PROTECT YOUR CASE, YOUR CLIENTS, AND YOURSELF

Probate issues lurk beneath every facet of personal injury cases. They can create additional venue opportunities, render your settlement release invalid, or make your judgment unenforceable. A probate court from a different county might even reach out and transfer venue from under you.

Whether you represent plaintiffs or defendants, a basic understanding of probate pitfalls can save you time, money, and potential malpractice exposure in your personal injury practice.

As a starting point, the following concepts are essential to understanding probate law.
? While alive, we have two aspects: a person and an estate.
? During our lifetime, while we retain mental capacity, we can grant a medical power of attorney over our person and a durable (financial) power of attorney over our estate.
? The powers of attorney we grant share authority with an agent called an attorney-in-fact and can be revoked at any time.
? If we lose mental capacity, a probate court can appoint a guardian of the person and/or guardian of the estate for us.
? Unlike powers of attorney that share authority, guardianships strip authority and vest it entirely in the guardian.
? Once we die, all that remains is our estate.

These concepts will help you navigate the probate world. I encourage you to contact me with your questions following my presentation.
